After a busy offseason that brought about a healthy serving of change, BIIF squads finally know what their seasons will look like.
The league finalized and announced what the schedule will be for the new-look BIIF on Monday, which includes an additional three teams in D-II with Kohala, Pahoa and Ka‘u making the move from the 8-man game, and some division shuffling, with Konawaena and Honokaa making the jump to compete in Division I.
D-II will have: Kamehameha-Hawaii, HPA, Pahoa, Kohala and Ka‘u.
Defending D-II champion Kamehameha-Hawaii decided to stay put, but will still get a sprinkle of D-I competition in the preseason. Waiakea (Aug. 10) and defending D-I champion Hilo (Aug. 16) are both on the Warriors’ preseason slate.
The top two teams in each division make it to the postseason. There are no semifinals. The BIIF championships will be held on Nov. 1-2, while the HHSAA tournament kicks off on Nov. 15.
There is a built-in BIIF bye week at the end of the season that could be utilized if games during the season are postponed due to bad weather.
